On the breezy shores of Ironwoods and set against a shimmering waterfront, Kayla Jo & John tied the knot in an intimate Kapalua Beach wedding. This gorgeous New York couple hand-selected elements of rustic flair and timeless glamour, perfectly pairing the polished style of their hometown with the lively nature of the tropics.
Flooded with natural light and vivid blooms, Ironwoods is situated north of Kāʻanapali and overlooks the statuesque cliffs of the West Maui Mountains. One of the most unforgettable locales on Maui, the embankment that curves around the backside of Lahaina makes for an earth-moving experience that’s rarely seen by the casual visitor. And because of the gallantry of this stunning couple, we were able to capture some of the most spectacular poses on the cliffscapes that we’ve ever seen!
Reverend Kuya Alamodin officiated the ceremony, opening with the deep, reverberating call of the Hawaiian conch shell. The pu (conch shell) is used in Hawaiian culture to offer heavenly respect and bless the affair with holy mana.
To the tune of “Marry Me” and watched on by close family, Kayla Jo made her debut while linking arms with her proud father.
We loved capturing the intimate and sincere moments between the couple.
Who could not be inspired by this radiant beauty? Adorned in a haku lei and carrying one of our rustic Hawaiian bouquets, Kayla Jo takes our breath away.
From the pearly shimmer of her gown’s bodice to the silken flow of her beach-ready hair, we’re left wide-eyed as we soak in her otherworldly grace that was so exquisitely captured in these shots.
Excuse us while we collect our jaws from the floor…
We thought it was extra special that the couple created a personal sign to use during the session. A friend hand-lettered across their favorite album by Tim McGraw. Not only is “Shotgun Rider” their wedding song, but they also attended one of his concerts on a date… how incredibly sentimental!
As the sun dipped below the horizon, the couple shared a few embraces on the cliffscape…
And as we said earlier, the session was breathtaking!
Thank you, Kayla Jo & John for making us a part of your unforgettable Kapalua beach Wedding… We wish you all the happiness in the years to come…
